Moritz
Cavalier
Close Contact Saddles

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Moritz
Model: Cavalier
Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: I got this saddle used on eBay for $400, which was an awesome deal. I have seen other used Moritz saddles for $1000 and up.

Likes: I love this saddle! It is a deep oakbark / mahogany color. The leather is soft and supple. The billets show wear but the leather on the seat and flaps is remarkably high quality and looks brand new. (I do not know how old the saddle is because I got it second hand - but the leather looks new!) I have very long legs and the flaps are forward enough to accommodate. The knee rolls are perfectly placed and grippy. It puts me in a good position (slightly forward) for both flat work and jumping. The seat is so comfortable. The medium width tree is a good fit for my 16 hand, average width horse.

Dislikes: Few people have heard of Moritz but they are popular in the U.K. and the rest of Europe. Other than that there is nothing I dislike about this saddle!

Quality: See above - I think this saddle is as well constructed as (or better than!) my Stubben. I am thrilled with the quality of the leather.

Summary: There aren't many of these saddles around, but if you get the chance, buy one!
